The talk investigates the way norms about what an agent ought to do relate to the agent's intentions and plans. In the first part of the talk, I focus on the role of norms in the formation of an agents’ intentions (especially the so-called “prior intentions”) and on the effects on the agent’s planning. I present a formal model which combines (a simplified version of) Stit logics and Veltman's To-Do Lists semantics. Basic elements of the model are a tree-like structure which represents the agent's planned actions and, attached to every node of the tree, To-Do Lists representing the agent's intentions. The model is dynamic: a norm triggers a change to the effect that the norm is incorporated in the agent's To-Do List, and the tree is restricted to that subtree which allow the agent to eventually bring about what the norm requires. In the second part of the talk, I draw some connections between such dynamic model and relevant works in practical philosophy (as Bratman 1987, Broome 2013, Gibbard 2011 and Horty 2015). The talk is based on a joint work with Dominik Klein.
